Salt-Water Moon

A Factory Theatre Production touring with Why Not Theatre

Ambition tore them apart. Can the stars guide them back together?

The First World War is over and every day, the villages of Newfoundland are abandoned for a new life in the big city. Under the light of the moon, two former lovers meet to confront their past choices and contemplate a possible future – together. Director Ravi Jain reimagines this beloved Canadian classic about love, loss, and reconciliation through an intercultural lens, asking the question, “Can you ever truly return home?”

“an irresistible reimagining of a Canadian classic”

The Globe & Mail

“Director Ravi Jain’s extraordinary production of Salt-Water Moon, David French’s classic love story, is elementary in the best sense… I can’t imagine a Salt-Water Moon that better captures that very human blend of affection and tension.”

NOW Magazine (5/5 N’s)

“Ravi Jain’s direction is what elevates this production into one of Factory’s best. It’s full of joy and love; tension and loss. It’s a perfect poem that you never want to end.”

Broadway World

“does what any good production of a classic does: reminds us why it’s a classic in the first place.”
